Crunch time in Euro football
To no one's surprise, it'll be Barcelona vs. Manchester United in the Champions League final, May 28 at Wembley Stadium... Man U's loss to Arsenal on Sunday put the Premier League title back on the line; Chelsea could grab the lead with a win at Manchester this Sunday, May 8, 10am, live on FSC... As the European season heads into its last couple of weeks, several major titles have been decided – Dortmund, AC Milan, and Barcelona will be champions – but lots of Champs League and Europa League slots are still up for grabs, while a couple dozen teams on the other end of the standings fight against relegation. Lots of meaningful games on TV... Monterrey beat Real Salt Lake, 1-0, last Wednesday to win the CONCACAF Champions League and a spot in the year-end Club World Cup.
